Captain Matt Thomas does not rate Swansea’s chances against Cardiff in ultimate frisbee, but insists his side will “come out fighting” in an attempt to defy the odds.
Swansea made the semi-final round of the Western Regional Championships and will look to capitalise on this run of form in May.
“We have trained a lot for the western regional competition,” said Thomas.
“Unfortunately we got knocked out in the semi-finals.
“This was still the best the team had ever done at regionals.”
Cardiff performed strongly once again this year, finishing higher than last year’s national champions Sussex.
“Cardiff are one of the strongest teams in the UK and in the five years our university has had a team, we have never beaten them,” added Thomas.
“We have trained extremely hard this year but I would say our chances of beating them are quite low. But with Varsity, anything can happen.”
Thomas will hope to rely on experience if they are to upset the very strong Cardiff team.
He added: “We have an American exchange student who has over eight years experience and a couple of players who play for top UK clubs.”
